Consider having a look at the Samyang 8mm. Many one of the best fisheye lens and also the cheapest ($300).

You have no AF (or AF confirmation) but that's not much of a problem for a fisheye lens.

I have this lens (the Rokinon 8 mm version) and really like it -- far more than my conventional 15mm AF fisheye (a Sigma); price was $265 or so at Amazon -- hard to beat. There is more info on it here:
